Bug Description

From this URL
https://edge.launchpad.net/people/?name=Firstname+Lastname&searchfor=all

Will find:
Firstname Lastname

Will not find
FirsnameLastname

Searching for a user who made an error in their display name by (let's just say) omitting a space in between the two (could also be dashes or underscores), Launchpad's search function is not able to find and display this user. Please check if there is a way to make the search a little smarter.

Changed in launchpad:
status: New → Confirmed

As a workaround, you can use a search term like

    (Firstname AND Lastname) OR FirstnameLastname

There is also a NOT operator, with the obvious meaning.

(only uppercase AND / OR / NOT are recognized as logical operators.)
